Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Napa Valley California

2017 – 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Merlot. Aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 22 months. Effusive aromas of blackberry, black cherry, freshly turned earth and subtly warm toasty oak notes. The palate is dense and richly cocentrated with fine grained tannin and good length. flavors of dark chocolate, cark berry compote, and hints of dried thyme and leather are abundant. This wine incorporated choice fruit from vineyards throughout Napa Valley, from the organic Estate Vineyards to small rugged hillside sites of partner growers. By blending these various lots, a wine is created which has a rich panorama on the palate – a landscape of complexity and character that clearly expresses Napa Valley.
